The film directed by Filmmaker, Author and Journalist Nelson George honors the 50th anniversary of the landmark Voting Rights Act of 1965 with a moving and exciting combination of film, music,and spoken word.
The Voting Rights Act of 1965 is a landmark piece of federal legislation in the United States that prohibits racial discrimination in voting. Designed to enforce the voting rights guaranteed by the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments of the United States Constitution. The act allowed for a mass enfranchisement of racial minorities throughout the country, especially in the South.

Vote, It Ain't Illegal Yet! will include contributions by Rosario Dawson,Vernon Reid, Burning Spear, Al Wright, Carl Hancock, and many more.
